A Visit To Lal Quilla

I spent much of the morning recovering pictures from two more posts. When Wayback Machine is required these processes take much longer because when images are completely missing and have no indications of what they were I have to use that indispensable facility. This was the case with:

This evening Becky and Ian joined us all at Lal Quilla for my birthday meal, which I will review tomorrow. In the meantime here are Jackie’s photographs of family members.

Becky brought along some new toys which kept Ellie well amused.

Our great granddaughter sat between her parents for a while,

mostly on her mother’s lap,

until gravitating towards that of her grandmother.


  1. Lal Qilla is a great place to celebrate a birthday. Best wishes for a blessed and healthy life.
    Beautiful photos of the family.

  2. Happy Birthday, Derrick! It looks as though it was well celebrated; it’s always best to have family around on such occasions!

  3. I look forward to reading the review of your birthday dinner.
    I love the images of Ellie looking up at Becky, they are gorgeous, what a beautiful smile Ellie has.
    Well captured Jackie and a must for the family albums. πŸ™‚

  4. Happy Birthday, Derrick! What a beautiful celebration with your sweet family! YAY on celebrating you!
    Ellie certainly brings the joy to every day!
    Jackie, your photos are so lovely! You’ve captured in photos such sweet memories for all of you, but especially for Ellie!
    BIRTHDAY (((HUGS))) πŸ™‚ ❀️

    1. Thank you very much, Barbara. When Ella saw these she said “that’s Ellie, and she’s wearing my T-shirt”

  5. Happy Birthday Derrick! Wishing you a wonderful year ahead.

    Your header photo is fabulous, and I see why you picked it. I also love the third in the series, with Flo’s great look at Dillon. Bravo, Jackie, for catching that moment.

    Also love the Ellie and Becky series. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely evening with us.
